Ebay's most popular catagory is Clothing and Acessories in Australia. Although Ebay has strict rules apon listing clothing, we can all still be worried that the item wont be in "great" condition like stated, the item will not fit us or worst of all the item is paid for but never recieved. This guide will provide information on situations and suggestions that will help you make the right choice when bidding on an item.


First of all, all hygenic clothing must be brand new. Ebay prohibits items such as boxer shorts, lingerie, swinwear, leotards, panties, briefs and certain athletic garments to be listed on ebay unless they are new. Consequences for selling these items used are:
  • Listing Cancellation
  • Limits on account priledges
  • Account suspension
  • Forfiet of ebay fees on cancelled items
  • Loss of powerseller status

When bidding on a garment, make sure you know what size you are. Remember, it is not the seller's fault if the item does not fit you (unless listing was incorrect).
Another helpful tip to remember, is that all brands have different sizing, especially designer clothing. Designer clothing have small sizes, and are not the same to your surf wear sizes.

So how can you be sure if it will fit you? Ask Questions!

Ebay members will have the time to answer your questions about an item they are selling. Be precise when asking questions, and cleary state what you would like to know. Not all used items will have measurements on thier listing, so if in doubt ask them for measurements (bust, outer leg etc).

Lastly, dont fret if you have paid for an item and you have not recieved it. In another guide, you will be able to find out what course of action you are able to take if this occurs.

I hope this guide has been helpful.
